it is tuesday, march 17 2015. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead including what's next for accused killer robert durst? rikki klieman and erin moriarty are here. a passenger on board started screaming and running towards the cockpit. >> robert durst has been in a louisiana jail since his arrest. authorities in that state filed felony charges. election in israel is a national holiday. they are expecting a record turnout. >> the tsarnaev brothers were firth urer down the block

shooting in this direction. it only lasted about eight minutes but police testified it was some of the scariest moments in their life. >> according to activists that attack took place in the village of sarmin and video appears to show after math of chlorine gas attack. if these talks fail it could tip off atomic arms race in the volatile middle east. retiring after just one season chris borland says he is worried about repeated head injuries. you were the roast master at the comedy central of justin bieber. how did that go? >> it was a little rough. there were moments where i'm like justin is going to cry in the car. >> today's eye opener at 8:00 is presented by prudential. i'm charlie rose with gayle
8:02 am
king. norah o'donnell is off. this morning. airline passengers are being credited with ending a violent outburst. the pilot of a flight to denver declared an emergency after taking off from dulles. he turned the flight around and returned to dulles. the incident began when a man rushed the cockpit. >> come on! >> don't fight, david. >> passengers on flight 1074 tackled the man and held him on the floor of the cabin. a law enforcement source says the man may have been on some type of medication or drugs. no weapons were found and was taken to the hospital for evaluation. millions of israelis are voting on a referendum. netanyahu vowed to block the creation of a palestinian state next to israel if reelected.
8:03 am
accused killer robert durst is in jail waiting to return to california. the notorious millionaire is being held in louisiana. he was arrested there on saturday. durst appears to incrimnate himself in her death in an hbo documentary. >> legal experts are debating whether legal evidence from the film will be ad missable. rikki klieman joins us along with erin moriarty. erin, you followed this so long. what are you asking this morning? >> i think we are looking at a whole new case. everyone thinks about the galveston case where he was charged with murder in the case of morris black. he admitted he dismembered somebody and he was acquitted. you are wondering what is going to happen in this case with susan berman with less evidence.
8:04 am
>> will it be ad missable what he said in the bathroom? >> you have three questions here. we have to look at chain of custody of the tape. how long did they have it? where did it go? was it edited? we have to look at the fact about the admission itself and look and see if he had a reasonable expectation of privacy. now, we're really thinking in the bathroom we have a reasonable expectation of privacy. was the producer working in concert with law enforcement so that then it kicks in the question of should he really have been advised in any way. one of the things his lawyer said to me late last night when we talked is jarecki was interested in ratings. he edited the show to suit his purpose. we're interested in the truth. the final thing about the statement is is it reliable?
8:05 am
what can he mean? was he being his usual sarcastic self or is it an admission of guilt? >> yesterday when the producer was here he said they gave the evidence to police several months ago. they didn't discover it until two months after he muttered the words. why wasn't he arrested until saturday? >> certainly the l.a.p.d. made a statement and said they only came to arrest him on the basis that they thought he was going to flee. the defense, mark my words, is going to file a motion to dismiss in california based on what they perceive as collusion with the producers and police department and that the timing is more than coincidental. >> they had been getting tape all along for over a year. they had parts of the interview and so it's hard to believe that
8:06 am
that was because they were concerned he was a risk to the community or a dasker. >> do the questions about the producers have to do with ethics or legality? >> could be both. >> and then you are stuck with what evidence do they have beyond that they don't get that in? there is really interesting evidence. susan berman was killed and he had just paid two $25,000 checks to her. >> can we assume that 48 hours will be doing something on this case st. >> doing it this weekend. >> following erin wherever she goes. >> nice to see you both. rikki klieman and erin moriarty. who is watching when you drive rental cars. the fam rus are part of an upgrade to the navigation systems. they are in about one of every eight rentals. hertz says they are not functional yet, part of an in

in our morning rounds vitamin d is getting a big f for battling hypertension. a new study finds the supplement is useless for lowering blood
8:13 am
pressure and too much could open the door to other serious health problems. our dr. david agus goinz us. what do you want us to know about the research? >> this pooled lots of other studies and showed taking vitamin d did not lower blood pressure. there is an association people with lower blood pressure take vitamin d. it is one of many trials that have failed with this vitamin. >> go ahead. >> so do we need vitamin d? >> the answer is no. there is more and more people taking it. it is the second most prescribed or taken vitamin in the country second to multi vitamin yet there is no benefit. >> is there debate in the medical community about this or is it 100% sure that vitamin d
8:14 am
has no good effects? >> the associations are real. people with lower vitamin d have lower cancer. it is not because it is causal. the u.s. task force says nobody in the country should be tested or taking vitamin d. 75% of caucasians and 97% of african-americans are low in d. nobody should be taking it at the present time in a normal individual. >> i am totally confused by this because i was told i had some of the lowest vitamin d levels ever seen. i was prescribed to get these supplements which i took. for people like me what are you saying that we should do? are you saying nobody should be taking it is scary. >> the data are people over 70 who take vitamin d increase the rate of bone fracture by 26%.
8:15 am
people who take vitamin d have stomach problems kidney stones with no benefit on bone fracture rate at all. gayle, i don't think you have rickets. so taking it it probably doesn't make sense. we don't know what a low level necessarily means. >> people taking vitamin d probably are taking it because their doctor prescribed it. >> if they doctor told them to do it these data question what doctors are telling people to do. if your doctor says you should be on vitamin d i want you to say where is the data it will benefit me and challenge for the data. >> your name is going to be coming up a lot today in doctor's offices. that is david agus. >> the government decide how many room mates you can live with? inside the mansion where a full house is leading to a legal fight next on "cbs this morning."

8:20 am
>> if you ask this group of 11 couples, singles and children whether they are different from anyone else they will tell you no. the only difference is they decided to share a home. the city of hartford says under zoning codes that kind of living arrangement is not allowed. the west end neighborhood boasts stately mansions and high profile homeowners including the mayor and connecticut's governor and then the people living in this house. like others they bought their home and live here in apparent domestic harmony. >> do you consider yourself a family? >> absolutely. >> except they are not. this group of 11 includes three couples with three children and two single people. they are all long-time friends who decided years ago they wanted to live together. kevin lamkins is an english
8:21 am
teacher. >> i think it is values. the values i'm thinking of are sustainability, cooperation, living well but within your means, being connected to other people and not being in a silo so to speak. >> reporter: this group of friends includes three teachers a grants manager and mental health therapist. >> a couple of things we want to get out of the way. is this a cult? it's not a cult. there is no religion. there is no intermingling. >> intermingling? >> we are really living very much like most people are. we just are doing it together. >> this is our kids den. >> reporter: they purchased the nine bedroom home and moved in last august. they have a legal partnership agreement and shared bank account. the group spent $30,000 so far to repair the home built in
8:22 am
1921. >> you assign particular people to these projects? >> the projects are ongoing issues. >> reporter: they all say it works well but some neighbors apparently don't agree. someone complained to the city which determined in october that the living arrangement violates the zoning code for the neighborhood which specifies that although houses may be massive no more than two unrelated people can live in them. it came as a surprise to the group. >> we did some research. and the reason why we thought we were okay is because there is a density clause. only a certain amount of people per acre and we more than fit that. >> reporter: last month they appealed and lost. they have to decide whether to fight the decision in court or break up the group and sell. hannah simms. >> it's been terrifying and really stressful. we are just getting into living together and functioning as a family with all 11 of us.
8:23 am
and it's already become very precious i think to all of us. >> reporter: city officials would not comment citing possible litigation. land use attorney says zoning codes were designed to protect neighborhoods. >> historically it was to rule out things like boarding houses. it would be wise of hartford to look at the definition of family. how does it work? is it doing what you want it to do? >> this group says in their case definitely not. >> it's preposterous. whoever is in your home and who you love is who your family is. and the notion that the city will discount that is unacceptable to us. >> some cities and towns have found ways to address these living arrangements calling it a functional family. they must have an ownership interest, share house keeping duties and adhere to specifications for the homes
8:24 am
don't end up as boarding houses. we reached out to neighbors who made the complaints and none were willing to comment on camera for us. but we know some neighbors probably concerned with what happens with other houses. >> what happens next? >> the group has to decide. they say they are going to fight. they haven't said how but you can imagine there is probably a legal battle which is why the city didn't want to comment either. >> i am sorry some neighbor complained. what should matter is are you good citizens and good neighbors. yo you can have people related who are horrible. here you have people being kind to each other and good in the neighborhood. >> how do you address that under a zoning code. >> i wish somebody would ask me. thank you. >> gayle, what do you think? >> that was a great story. new research shows the changing landscape on decisions about whether to become a

that got a big applause from the audience. "boston globe" reports on youngest girl in the united states to become a chess grand master. clarissa yip beat a grand master last fall. she learned to play when she was 6. she can play the game with her eyes closed. she said it is a challenging game and i like that about it. >> that is fantastic. congratulations. >> i like her. and the washington post issues a royals visit alert. prince charles and wife cumilla arrive in the nation's capitol tonight. together they will tour before a reception at the british embassy. sometime before they head home friday they will stop at the white house to shake hands with president obama. prince harry is making what
8:33 am
he calls -- charlie's favorite royal. he calls a tough decision to end his military career. the fourth in line for the british throne spent a third of his life serving in the army. elizabeth palmer with what the prince may be planning for his future. what does he see? good morning. >> reporter: we tend to think of harry as sort of the roguish younger brother of the royal household. this year he is 30 years old and will mark that anniversary milestone with a professional career change. the military suited prince harry who graduated from the uk's top officer training school in 2006 with his proud grandmother looking on. his first job in the front lines in afghanistan was supposed to be a secret in case the taliban kidnapped him. he retained as an apache pilot and went back for a second tour.
8:34 am
in that job celebrity came second. the soldiering always came first. captain wales liked the people machines and the missions. >> i was always thinking work hard slay hardplay hard. i always enjoy my job. >> harry played very hard in his teens and 20s, caught on a cell phone romping in the buff in las vegas and dressing up as a nazi for a costume party. an older more sober harry has gradually emerged. patron of a charity that educate children. not so long ago princes william and harry were second and third in line to the throne the so-called heir and despair. but when prince george was born
8:35 am
harry moved down a notch. apparently he doesn't care that he will probably never wear the crown. >> every time he steps down the line i think he is freer to do what he wants to do. >> reporter: one thing he wants to do is continue work with disabled veterans. he helped to organize the games in london. as he redefines his role for the future he has already committed himself to volunteer with military personnel recovering from both mental and physical injuries. >> and there is another hint from the palace that he may adopt a cause close to his brother's heart and that is he will throw his royal weight around the conservation of wild life in africa. >> thanks very much. there is a new twist in the age old debate about whether couples should become parents. the study found men want to have kids more than women.
8:36 am
articles spot light the growing number. it is most read and shared post on a cut. the magazine's lifestyle website has gotten quite a reaction. you surprised by that? >> what i was trying to do was name something that has gone unnamed which is growing number of young women who just don't know whether they want kids or who is now partners is absolutely sure. >> what were you seeing? >> i was just having conversations with friends, colleagues around my age, women who were saying i just don't know if i want to have a kid. i'm really stuck in this decision. >> were you thinking about it yourself? >> i have been thinking about it myismself. i am married. i think women at my age are really wrestling with this question and their male partners seem really confident. they said absolutely i always
8:37 am
wanted to be a dad. that is something i have known my bhoel life. >> does this have to do with the fact that more and more women are in the work place? >> absolutely. today's young woman is integrated. every woman my age is thinking about her career what she wants to do professionally. we are very aware that it is tough in this country to balance your career and children. they are sort of weighing these things. i think the men in our lives are aware of this but they also probably know that they are not going to be asked to give things up, not going to be guilted about it. it is an easier road for them. >> does it prize you that the men were more interested? women are still doing a heavy lifting a home even if you have a great husband that does the great things. >> i think today's young people want a legal tar yn relationship. you put a kid in the picture and things are chaotic.
8:38 am
>> you just want it to be fair. men and women both want equality but women don't expect it. >> i think we are just really -- our eyes are open about the challenges and what is likely to happen. i think men may be more optimistic and then a kid comes into the picture and see what the reality is. >> because you are better than us. >> we watched our mothers. i think our mothers really wanted equality but really struggled with it. >> when it comes to age, what ages are we talking about and how much has been changed? >> i'm talking about women in their mid to late 20s, sort of the older end of the millennial generation. biology is a big question here. you get to a certain age and the decision is either made for you or you have made it for yourselfism these are women just getting to the age where they feel the pressure to make a decision. this is not necessarily sort of
8:39 am
teenage women or early 20s when the question is farther off. >> what has to happen before you don't see these results? >> my personal opinion is the next generation is the one where things are a lot easier. they will watch us as parents and say they got close and we are going to figure it out. >> you can compromise on many things in relationships, children is one thing you cannot compromise on. getting into top colleges might not be worth the fight.

college. high school seniors will learn. colleges are posting acceptance and rejection notices. "new york times" columnist frank rooney offers encouraging news to students who do not get into the likes of princeton or stanford. "where you go is not who you will be." we welcome you to the table. one thing you point out is madness and nonsense yes or no from a certain school determines your value. >> we created a culture where we have kids and parents. it's not true. it's a destructive narrative to tell them. the book tries to explain why you can have success in any number of ways traveling down any number of paths and to treat this juncture as more than it is is not a good idea. >> don't you have to look around and see what people have done in terms of traditional definition of achievement? >> you can look at the table.
8:45 am
university of maryland syracuse. no pattern here. you are all at the table because of energy you put into your careers. you are here because of basic challenges -- >> university of maryland. >> look at that girl on the right. >> thank goodness for -- >> you were so good looking in college. >> this is the thing. university of maryland i say i went to university of maryland people go that is lovely. you say you go to duke or harvard or yale. i don't think you can deny that when you go to one of the top tier schools that people look at you differently and regard you differently and make in most cases correct assumptions. doesn't that count for something? >> it can be an advantage and those schools are really great schools. we have to keep it in perspective. this table shows in any survey of successful people shows that they come from all sorts of educational pedigrees.
8:46 am
the oo when you say duke is wonderful. not getting that does not mean you will get ahead. >> i agree. >> that is what we cannot lose sight of. >> a lot of it comes from the rankings. how have the rankings effected the way the colleges pursue them the way they live by these? >> colleges pursue students to get acceptance rates down. they want to rise in these rankings because americans love rankings. they love to have judgment out to surveys. there might be a best school for you but no objective best school. that is why putting too much faith and attention to rankings is a big mistake. >> i realize you are saying you can still do really well if you didn't go to a fabulous school. the last presidents harvard.
8:47 am
yale. columbia. >> let's talk about that. >> and then all supreme court justices went to ivy league law schools. >> when you say yale you are talking about george w. bush. did yale make him? wasn't he bound for yale? >> legacy matters? >> to attribute bush's time in the white house to anything at yale is more a blood line than anything else. >> you mentioned supreme court. we can look at other sample sets and get a much different picture. senate very few people in the senate went to ivy league schools. we love to talk about the ivy league when we see that pattern. joe biden university of delaware. chris christie university of delaware. in the 2008 campaign david fluff, steve schmidt university of delaware. why aren't we talking about this maker of political kings,
8:48 am
university of delaware? because we prefer another narrative. >> we can talk about syracuse university. >> parents really need to relax. people go through so much. the things people say to admissions counselors just to get into school is amazing. >> people get so focused. i talked to one who said he had a panicked call from a couple of parents who were planning a lavish vacation in the summer for the kid and then they go the colleges want to see he has done community service so we need to have him build roads. the counselor reminded they are in europe. >> there is a game to get admitted in addition to academic achievement because the competition is so tough there are things you can do. >> there are things you can do and things you have the good luck of being. kids and parents need to remember when they are getting too heart broken over not getting into a school.
8:49 am
if you are a star athlete or legacy these can be a leg up. >> i hear the music. we got to go. this was the best part of the book to me. a parent wrote to his child there is not a single college in this country that would not be lucky to have you. you are capable of succeeding at any of them. we love you as deep as the ocean, as high as the sky, all the way around the world and back again to wherever you are headed. they sent that before rejection notices came in. >> very revealing. >> thank you. where you go is not who you will be goes on sale today. you are watching "cbs this morning."
